I've had a Lee Classic Turret press for about a year now and love it. Have about 5000 9's and .40's thru it.
I wanted somethin faster and I looked at and strongly considered a 550B, but just can't afford one or nor can I justify the cost.
Long story short, I just bought a factory refurbished Lee Pro 1000 from the Close Out page of the Lee Precision website
. Full factory warranty. The price was only $132. Graf & Sons wanted $166 and Midway wanted $174.
NO BAD MOUTHING FROM YOU BLUE GUY....
